The research group for child and adolescent health has for decades had a strong engagement in multidisciplinary neonatal research and quality improvement.

Focus areas for neonatal research are parental involvement in neonatal care and follow-up, early diagnosis of adverse developmental outcome (cerebral palsy), neonatal infections, neonatal lung diseases and neonatal resuscitation. We have in the past and will in the future participate in international multicentre trials. We also aim to have active national research collaboration within the Norwegian neonatal network.
